8. The article seems to suggest it's a side effect of the capacity to make moral judgements.
Which in itself is useful for maintaining order in the group and therefore enhances one's odd of survival. Or, at least, did in primitive societies. We have LOTS of traits that were necessary in the distant past but now are hindrances. I maintain that the predisposition to religion is one of those.
